By me! Just now!
We got a press release yesterday announcing the upcoming appearance of great local band Ramona Falls on a show called Audio-Files —"a new BYUtv television series of half-hour documentaries about the Indie music scene’s most outstanding ascending artists."
Hey, what's a BYUtv?
"BYUtv is a service of Brigham Young University."
IT IS? Tell me more!
"BYU Broadcasting is an integrated media organization that inspires people to see, do, and be the good in the world by providing uplifting content, magnifying the university, engaging like-minded communities, and elevating ideals into action."
Uh huh, ok. What sort of ideals?
...no comment? Okay, let's talk about Indie Rock Music some more!
What makes an Indie band tick? The general consensus among the subjects featured in Audio-Files—a new BYUtv television series of half-hour documentaries about the Indie music scene’s most outstanding ascending artists—is that they’re compelled to make music by some kind of irrefutable inner force.
The trendsetting series explores what drives these folks to become musicians, to lead a life full of unknowns, big risks and possible great rewards.
Hey, Mormons, stop trying to trick me into thinking you're cool. I read Under the Banner of Heaven. I know what's up.
Also, I feel the same way about this sentence that Mormons feel about gay people:
Audio-Files is shot in High Definition cinema verite style using handheld cameras, giving the pieces a gritty, soul-searching Super 8 tone.
